golf champion, was served the golden
rule summons and haled into police
court on a charge of violating the

DEN SHOW CLOSES
WITH MONDAY NIGHT
Actors Preparing to Outdo
Themselves at the Final
Performance at the
Monday night's performance at
Ak-Sar-Ben Den will close the ini
tiations and amateur performance for
this season. The 150 delegates to the
national convention of building own
ers and managers will be here as the
special guests of the Den for the
evening.. Other out-of-town guests
will be there, too, and all Omahans,
members of Ak-Sar-Ben, who have
friends in the city that night will
take them out for this final perform
ance, for it is well known that the
actors simply outdo themselves on
this final night to produce a great
show and to make the initiation es
pecially strong and fetching.
Omaha people, too, are talking
much of taking in this last night of
the season, for there is always a bar
rel Of fun and a lot Of spontaneous
revelry not actually scheduled on the

No sooner will the last show be
over than the crew of workmen u

for the completion of the float-building

tivities and at the same time another
force will begin rearranging the
stately hall at the Den for the big

.clash of tools from now until the lat

The coronation ball this year is to
be a military ball. Reproduction o
ancient court scenes will be elimi-
nated, dropped, bounced from the list
this year and military order is to
take its place.
Americans are "making the world
safe for democracy' now and Omaha
is playing its part in this great strug
gle. So the things that smack of
autocracy in the ball will be elimi
nated as far as this is possible in a
spectacle in which the coronation of
a mock king is the chief feature.
Sutton Charges Against
Unger Are Dismissed
The city council discussed charges
filed by Taut B. Sutton against Pa
trolman John Unger, Corporation
Counsel Lambert advising that the
chargea were 'not sufficiently specific
to stand the acid test of law.
Mr. Sutton announced he would file
new charges of a specific nature.
This case grew out of the recent
Maloney-Sutton investigation by city
council. Unger testified in connection
with his visit to the Melson house
with Sutton and was one of the chief
witnesses against Sutton.

a woman in the face because she
would not buy k flower from him, was
sentenced to the State Industrial
school at Kearney by Judge Sears,

"My boy, lectured Judge Sears,
"the evidence shows you are what
some people would call a 'bad egg.'
You're a 'moocher,' a disgrace to your
family and a menace to the other boys
who sell papers. A term in Kearney
will teach you you can't slap people
